Review: The New York Times Android App

Just recently, The New York Times got in touch with us so we could check out the new updates they’ve made to their Android app. Adding some sleek navigation upgrades to their app, The New York Times Android app is now very fluid and harmonious with material design. You can download the New York Times app for free here.

There’s no question that The New York Times is always the best source for quality written content. Taking pride in this, they have updated their Android app to showcase the best of material design. With the new update, users get to enjoy reading and browsing through their content by simply swiping left and right on the screen. Users can easily access all their favorite sections on the app by swiping from the left. Doing so will bring up the menu where a topic and section can be picked out.

Another addition to the app is the accompanying widget for The New York Times. From the home screen, a widget of the app can be used for convenient access to its content. The best thing about this widget is that it can be resized to take up the whole home screen or just a small section of it. From there, the app will display headline articles as well as other topics that the user has shown interest in, based on the previous articles they’ve read. Once an article is clicked, the widget will lead back the user to the app so the full article can be seen.

The update to The New York Times Android app has turned out to be a refined version that is easy to enjoy. The articles are displayed in a clutter-free environment paired with some simple gestures that make it a fluid app. Without any distractions, users can put their entire focus on the written content. While it may be a less flashy version of other news apps, this is what makes The New York Times stand out.

As a whole, the newly updated The New York Times app is much easier to use and easy to enjoy. The best part is that it’s free to download. All you have to do is head over to the Google Play store, where you can download the updated version of The New York Times Android app with material design.
